namely john mccain and lindsey graham for the criticism leveled at susan rice. the u.n. secretary, shortly after the attacks that resulted in the death of four americans, she went on "meet the press" and other sunday shows and said what happened in benghazi was the result of a spontaneous protest that morphed in to something else and resulted in the death of those americans. republicans attacking ever since. but now, as susan rice's name floated as a successor to hillary clinton as secretary of state, mccain and graham taken out after susan rice. that, no question about it, it came from the heart and raised the ire of president obama. here's what he had to say. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to -- to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. when they go after the u.n. ambassador, apparently because they th
get the consequences. >> let's take a look at the president talking about susan rice, the u.n. ambassador who many think he will nominate to succeed hillary clinton as secretary of state. >> for them to go after the u.n. ambassador, who had nothing to do with benghazi, and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> paul: kim, that sure sounds like a president who is ready to nominate susan rice for the state department and my sources suggest that that's exactly what he's going to do. of course, my source haves been wrong before, but if-- and i've been wrong before. but if he does that, is this going to be a really big fight? >> oh, it's going be to be a huge fight because you have had republicans come out already and say, you drop her in the senate nomination battle and then we are going to go to the wall on this one, but i do believe you're right, not only is the president taking an unusual step of devoting during the press conference, but all types of forums to defend susan rice and make the c

wider participation in the u.n. system and does not create a country. >> we will not give up or tire. the determination will not wane. we'll continue to achieve peace. above all, i felt the people would not relink tish the national rights. >> the vote went against the wishes of the obama administration. the israel and u.s. voted no saying two-state achievement can only be achieveed through the direct negotiations. >> today unfortunate and counterproductive resolution places further obstams to pass to peace. that's why the united states voted against it. >> last year, mahmoud abbas sought statehood through the security council. israeli officials brand it as a public relations act without any real meaning. >> why continue to make painful sacrifices for peace in exchange for pieces of paper that the other side will not honor. >> it will make it less likely. >> jerusalem, as the prime minister benjamin netanyahu called abbas' speech hostile and poisonous and full of false propaganda. it seems tonight the 1947 vision of two sides living peacefully side-by-side is as elusive as 65 years ag
: the president is being warned against promoting u.n. ambassador susan rice. under fire about her incorrect statements about what happened in benghazi, but democrats say the attacks on rice are about race and gender. we will talk to kelly ayotte and see what she thinks about that. bill: feeling the heat from a major -- >> we don't have the estimate on the grid impact, we are still working on that. if you look through the downtown area the majority of it is dark except for the people who do have generators. there is a fairly substantial impact. copd makes it hard to breathe, but with advair, i'm breathing better. so now i can be in the scene. advair is clinically proven to help significantly improve lung function. unlike most copd medications, advair contains both an anti-inflammatory and a long-acting bronchodilator working together to help improve your lung function all day. advair won't replace fast-acting inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than twice a day. people with copd taking advair may have a higher chance of pneumonia. advair may increase your risk of osteopo
was removed from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. in the days following the deadly assault, rice said administration believed the attack was a reaction to an anti-islamic video. but, an associated press report says former cia director david petraeus testified on friday that he believed all along that the attack on the consulate was a terrorist strike. >> so let's -- before we set up these clips, let's make sure we set this up right. so we've been hearing, mark halperin, that susan rice said what she said because she was reading straight intel from the cia. we find out from david tet pet trace, this isn't true. that immediately david petraeus and intel officials knew this was an al qaeda attack. right? >> it's still kind of confusing. >> i'm basing that on "the new york times" reports and everything that i read through the weekend. >> totality of the reporting is there was another line coming out of the closed hearing was that they didn't want to say everything they knew in public because they didn't want the terrorists to know that tus government was on to them. >> i heard that.
are talking about is who is going to replace hillary clinton. the two names who have voted is u.n. ambassador susan rice and john kerry. i have no problem with susan rice. i think she's fantastic and unfortunate how she's been treated recently. i tell you, john kerry during this campaign has been fantastic in his debate prep with the president. i thought his speech as the dp nc was brilliant, and i think he would be a terrific diplomat. there's concerns that if he was nominated then the senate -- his senate seat would be open and scott brown could have another shot at getting into the senate. i don't think that would be the worst thing in the world for the president, especially since we picked up seats this time around. scott brown, as a republican who may actually across the aisle, could actually serve as a useful political tool for the president. that will be interesting to watch. the other one, of course, is treasury secretary time geithner leaving. one of the outside names that's been floated is cheryl sandberg, coo of facebook. she's the first one and she's had a terrific choice. another
there by u.n. secretary general for what will be a complex bit of diplomacy. the president's aide said mrs. clinton will not be going into gaza and not talking with hamas. >> can assure you she'll be meeting with the palestinian authority. the united states does not engage directly with hamas. hamas has not met the conditions we set. >> president obama voiced his support for israel's right to defend itself at a news conference on this trip. but in his private diplomacy, he has been urging israel to hold off sending troops into gaza and hopes the rocket attacks can be stopped without an escalation of the battle and the much greater casualties that would bring. this is the first international test of egypt's new muslim brotherhood government and while u.s. officials will not compare it with egypt's former president, hosni mubarak, they do say that they are encouraged by the consultation and cooperation they've had from egypt's new leadership. guys, back to you. >> steve: wendell goler in cambodia. >> brian: i don't know what time it is with laura ingraham. >> steve: she's in our time zone. >
between the palestinian factions and israel. turkish prime minister also in cairo and later today the u.n. secreta secretary-general ban ki-moon is expected to try to solidify a cessation of hostilities. the conflict is ongoing. hospital officials tell nbc news they are operating at a very limited capacity, they are afraid a ground invasion may push the health facilities here to the brink of collapse. >> thank you, we appreciate that report. eamon moyhedin. we'll have more on the tensions in the middle east throughout the morning. let's get back to this discussion that we were having and i'll make what i was trying to, what my case was, steve and jere jeremy, and even countries that deserve austerity it's easier said than done because people will immediately say you've just made it worse and you took a recession and turned it into almost a depression, so it's almost like people want you to extend the, you know, the credit card, give your wayward teenage son an additional $50,000 on the credit card and everything will be okay to avoid that. they're seeing it happening in spain. in spain th
-qaeda-inspired affiliated attack. yet five days later, the ambassador to the u.n. went out to all sunday news shows and told what was absolutely defiance of any rational logic or thinking. people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket propelled grenades. that was obvious on its face. why did they deceive the american people? why did the president of the united states continue to deceive the american people and the world? we need a select committee. nobody died in watergate. nobody died in iran-contra. four people died here. because of their lack of action as my friend lindsey graham says, they turned that consulate into a death trap. >> steve: they did indeed. now, senator, for people watching, they might not understand, we know some committees are meeting right now on capitol hill behind closed doors. you're calling for a select committee which politically might be hard -- i understand the republicans practice bely would go for that, but it might be hard to get the democrat controlled senate to sign on board with a select committee. >> it's going to require public pressure. the am
of greece, facing a default that would threaten the entire eurocurrency. finally, there is a new u.n. report saying that concentrations of greenhouse gases are up 20% since the year 2000. the report, days ahead of a climate conference reminds world government that their efforts to fight climate change are far from enough to meet their stated goals of limiting global warming. some of the headlines this hour on c-span radio. >> you career officers changed this army so that it becomes a volunteer army. by your soldiers in the villages and towns of america. we did that. over five or six years we created a splendid force of young men and women willing to serve their country as volunteers. they had the same tradition, culture, loyalty, and dedication as any other generation of americans. they prove themselves in the gulf war, the panama invasion, the last 10 years in iraq and afghanistan. the thing we have to keep in mind is something that president lincoln said during his second inaugural address. care for those who go to battle. widowed and children. to care. never forget that they are carrying
's unparalleled success. at the u.n. last year, president obama spoke strongly about this thing that the u.s. quote will support a free and open internet so individuals have the information to make up their own minds. no one has been a more forceful advocate of the economic and social opportunities of the open internet and secretary of state hillary clinton. who delivered a landmark speech on internet freedom in 2010 when she said that one of the fundamental freedoms of the internet age was the freedom to connect. the idea that government should not prevent people from connecting to the internet, to websites, or to each other. now, internet freedom is sometimes cited as an obstacle to addressing the issues of cybersecurity and intellectual property theft. i disagree with that. i disagree not because i question the importance of issues of the magnitude of the threat. a very serious problem we have to address. but i believe based on my experience that we can address those issues without undermining the core values like internet freedom and privacy. we've put our money where our mouths are at
presidential appointment as you and ambassador -- u.n. ambassador. in both of these positions, she has been independent and undeterred by ideology. most recently she advise the president that the united states should go into libya on the side of the rebels. susan rice has more than earned every office and every honor she has received, striving for and achieving top honors in high school academics here in washington as a phi beta kappa graduate of stanford university, as a rhodes scholar, as a ph.d. from oxford, and as a brilliant, tough-minded diplomat. we do not attend to stand by while ambassador rice, who had nothing to do with the tragic benghazi attack or its aftermath, it is made the scapegoat of the tragedy because she relate to the public the only official intelligence that was available to the administration at the time. the rush to judgment against the ambassador is particularly unprofessional and reckless considering that the intelligence irrefutably documents her public remarks. we will not allow a brilliant public servant's record to be mugged to cut off her consideration to be
